College Cottages

A prime residential location with potential for over 20 dwellings – within Green Belt on the edge settlement.






Not available



Former horticultural college/nurseries containing a number of buildings/workshops in a poor state of repair, two existing residential dwellings (2 & 3 College Cottages) and their gardens, and a planning permission (21/02824/FUL) for two additional dwellings.

The College Grounds are littered with both substantial but redundant buildings and the remains of numerous glasshouses that will not be demolished and removed without some future use for the site.

The existing access onto Crawfords could be utilised however it is narrow and may require improvement.

The original Draft Local Plan Site Appraisals (SHELAA HO58) concluded that the site was deliverable.

The SHELAA recognises that in order to release the potential of the site, its Green Belt constraint needs to be removed. The site does not fulfil the purposes of the green belt in its current condition and the change of use of the site to residential would facilitate the remediation of the land and the demolition of redundant buildings.

Blackthorn Homes are representing the landowner, and recently completed an award winning development of four houses in Dawson Drive, Hextable.

The building of over 20 dwellings would make a valuable contribution to the Council’s shortfall of housing in a very sustainable location.
